Topic: What have I Learnt from Blogging?
Meow...mew...mew...mew...Today is the final day of blogging before Zoe's departure and the official end of our classes blog project! Can cats cry? I think they can but others disagree, tears or no I am sad...
...I think that the very best thing that I have learnt from the blogs is how to respond appropriately to compliments and criticism. The open-ended disscussion forum of the blogs, I think, is different from the real world. Here, in cyberspace, one can take as long to say something as they want and are almost always heard. This means that people who normally don't say what they think of you or your work do. People you never talk to write to you, people you have never met comment on your blog. Initialy this was confronting, but the unfalmiliarity of this environment prompted me to adapt to it and I would like to say that I have. I may not be thriving but I am surviving, thanks to everyone who commented on Kitty Letter your comments are treasured along with what else lies in the litter.
Aside from resilience I have also learnt how to better support arguments and also to word veiws better, less blabbing and more stabbing! That is my motto for boring theatre performances and now also for debating. Delivering a point sharply and swiftly is better than it losing it's meaning amoungst a lot of big words. So I say toodle-ooo to waffle and hello to ice-cream.
Also blogging helped me to get in contact with other like-minded people far away which I think is really excellent.
Lastly, I think that maybe I have learnt a little more about the personality and veiws of my piers in 8S and also that interns arn't always stuck-up and nosy. I am unsure whether this litter will continue to serve as a place to deposit your and my opinions beyond this point.
What do you think?
As for my mark on the blog, I for once don't care, blogging is new to me and I learnt so much and had so much fun that I know for certain that this time I will walk away from a school project with something other than a mark and predictable comments...meow...
P.S. My paragraphing in this is scrambled as my ideas are as well!
P.P.S. I never got a MOTW award, I am disapointed to have not recived such a prestigious and outstanding award. Perhaps I will continue blogging just to achieve my life goal of being a monkey-cat! Also has Ben awarded Zoe a monkey of the week award? She deserves one!
